Great bit of hardware, it's not out the box easy so to speak but that's the point, there is great support online to do whatever you want on the machine.

Perfect for Learning!

I bought this so I could learn how to build small games without much experience. The product is small but very durable and it's so easy to get set up and start writing code. Cool Components shipped it very fast & packed it well. Great company to buy from.

Couldn't resist it!

I initially thought they would make cool Christmas presents for a couple of techie friends - but now I'm tempted to keep one of them! It's just so cool! You'll need your reading glasses if you're as wrinkly as me - but the display is very sharp and the picture quality is great. I'm trying to convince myself that I need to keep one to re-write a couple of games I loved when I was not so wrinkly - mainly 3D Monster Maze on the ZX81 - but I know in practice, this time next year, I'll be sitting playing Tetris! Too many other cool projects to work on.

I bought this so I could make some small games for it, the build quality is very good and the battery lasts ages.

Great Little Device

Great, clear screen (you might need your reading glasses though). Lots of simple but enjoyable games to play and the great thing is you can examine the code and make modifications. The website has some good tutorials on how to code games. It's amazing what can be done with very little memory.
